Zimbabwe Cricket has named a provisional squad of 24 in preparation for the ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup 2025.
The squad was picked during the national trials held in Harare last week.
Nine players including captain Kelis Ndhlovu have been retained from the side that represented Zimbabwe at the inaugural edition of the ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup held in South Africa in January this year.
The other eight are wicketkeeper Vimbai Mutungwindu, bowlers Kudzai Chigora, Tawananyasha Marumani, Olinder Chare and Chipo Moyo as well as all-rounders Kay Ndiraya, Kelly Ndiraya and Danielle Meikle.
The rest of the players from that squad are now above the stipulated age limit, therefore making them ineligible for selection.
With Trevor Garwe now in charge of the technical team as head coach, the Zimbabwe Under-19 Women will have to go through the regional qualifiers in order to book their place at the ICC Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup 2025 to be co-hosted by Malaysia and Thailand.
